Why Andy chose Port Sheldon

Sue (My Wife) grew up in Holland, MI. Sky's Beach was the perfect spot for family vacations and being close to our extended family.

What makes this house unique

We are directly on the Water and have beautiful views of the lake from every bedroom, A giant deck and play area make Sky's the perfect spot for a Lake Michigan vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is beautiful and the perfect location on the water.

A picture perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six plus my parents rented Skys Beach and had the best vacation we'd had in years. The house is very clean, spacious and comfortable with every amenity imaginable. The location was also perfect...the sunsets were astounding. The private beach and views were unbelievable. The kids had fun...the adults had fun. Plenty of relaxing too! If you're looking for an idyllic Lake Michigan vacation spot, this place is definitely it. We hope to be back...often!

Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just vacationed at Sky's Beach last week. The 9 of us enjoyed the convenience of simply walking out the door and down the boardwalk to the private beach, not to mention the beautiful view. The location of the house is in close proximity to both Holland and Grand Haven, by car. The owners were especially good at having everything in the house you might need for a comfortable stay from kitchen essentials to beach necessities. The grill (they have 2) came in handy and the pool table was enjoyed as well. There is even a fire pit on the beach to relax and make so mores and watch the sunset.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I use VRBO often, and this rental was one of the nicest I've seen. The house is spacious, clean, well-equipped and modern (but quaintly decorated). The views are awesome and it's proximity to nearby towns is very convenient.

The owner was very responsive to emails and the guest packet he provided in advance was well organized and thorough.

It's a definite "do-again"!

Wonderful extended family weekend get-together!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a long "beach weekend" on Lake Michigan, and Sky's Beach was a wonderful spot. The house was clean and well-appointed but very comfortable (you didn't feel like you couldn't touch anything for fear of mussing or breaking it), the kitchen worked well for multiple meal preparers to work simultaneously, the dining room table was large enough to fit us all, the living room and daybed nook were very inviting, the wraparound screened porch and deck were lovely, the bedrooms comfortable and the views plentiful and absolutely spectacular. We're already talking about renting it again next year! The only challenge we had was that none of us had cell phone service (even with multiple carriers), but it was also kind of nice to just unplug for a while! This is definitely a lovely spot for a larger group.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We should add a sentence in the welcome packet about cell service and make sure people have the house phone number.

Romantic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Saw an opportunity to use Sky's Beach for a weekend in early May. You never know what to expect in Michigan that time of year, but we hit it right and had an awesome "off-season" get away weekend. It's a big house for just two people, but the quiet and serenity in May is amazing. Talk about having the beach to yourself! I saw my wife get as relaxed as I have ever seen :-)

There's a new restaurant 0.5 miles away (walkable) that is a must see! Sandy Point Beach House.

Home is always clean and well maintained. Owner is easy to work with.

While I'd recommend this place for a summer, family vacation, consider it for a romantic, quiet weekend in the off season too.

Wonderful get-away, any time of year

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the weekend after Thanksgiving. Had 5 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children - plenty of space (sleeping and bathroom) for all! Short trip to Holland for Turkey Trot 5k race. Standing on the beach in the November gales is powerful, but watching the morning wind and waves from bed in the upper floor Master bedroom is great too! Brought our food and clothes and that's it - everything else (linens, towels, games, movies, etc.) was on hand. Log book of past visitors was entertaining. Notebook of information (including Wi-Fi codes!) was very helpful.

No stairs to the beach is a great feature of this place.

Everything was clean and well maintained. Felt more like being a guest in a friend's home than a rental.

Owner was very easy to work with. Good communication.

Have and will continue to recommend "Sky's Beach" to friends and relatives!
